On Thursday, the U.S. House Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on financial services advanced the 2022 fiscal year appropriations bill, which excludes the Hyde Amendment, a measure that was been in place for 45 years to protect American federal taxpayers from benign forced to fund abortions.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“There are also several controversial policy changes included in the bills, such as allowing tax dollars to fund abortions and removing the prohibition on Federal Employee Health Benefits funding for abortions,” said Arkansas Republican Rep. Steven Womack.

“There are also several controversial policy changes included in the bills, such as allowing tax dollars to fund abortions and removing the prohibition on Federal Employee Health Benefits funding for abortions,” said Arkansas Republican Rep. Steven Womack.

State Medicaid programs, which are jointly funded by the federal government, can provide abortion coverage if they choose, but they have to rely on their own revenues. Currently, 16 states use their own funds to provide abortion coverage to Medicaid beneficiaries. The rider to ban federal coverage for abortions also restricts funding under the Indian Health Service, Medicare, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Womack suggested that the full committee might be willing to “reach a bipartisan and bicameral agreement on spending” and maintain the Hyde Amendment in the spending package.

The news comes as the Joe Biden regime — the most anti-life in American history, has been forcing Americans to fund abortions through the Title X program, by erasing the pro-life Mexico City Policy, by instituting anti-life abortion pill programs, among other extreme measures. 

Biden’s corrosive anti-life agenda has been excoriated by many Catholic bishops, who demand Biden not receive the Eucharist due to him not being in full communion with Catholic teaching.

Joe Blow with his little beady slit-eyes makes me very nervous. And his party seems to have metamorphosed into the Party of Death.
